We ended up with Pizza Hut Pizza for Supper. We ate on the Patio and had some adult beverages to wash down the Pizza.

I have been shooting a Lyman .50 for many years. A great pistol.

Along with a lot of NSSA shooters i use Charlie Hahn tubes in my .54 caliber percussion Sharps carbine. If there is a part of a tube in the chamber or barrel i just shoot it out with no problem I would guess that the same thing would happen in a .45-70. The pressure wave from the exiting bullet would move what was left of the tube out the bore.
At least that would be my guess.
Comments please,

 I have a used .50 caliber Trapper percussion and I love it. I really can't speak much to quality since I am pretty much a beginner and this is the only single shot I have tried. I will say that single shot pistols are tons of fun since loading is so quick and easy compared to a revolver.

As for accuracy I have gotten a 10 shot, 4 inch group at 25 yards using 20 grains real black powder, .490 ball and .012 patches lubed with muttontallow/beeswax. When I ran out of .012 patches and used some 100% cotton cleaning patches that were noticeably thinner the accuracy suffered quite a bit.

I'd hang a 24" octagon barrel about 7/8" across the flats on it and more suitable front end wood.

    Sounds like it would be dandy for a stroll through the woods! Cheesy

Good Troy ........  Grin

I just happen to RESEMBLE THAT  Roll Eyes  Yep, would be me Cheesy

Lefty ........

Velley Interestink!!  I may have to look into that.  Although, I think, with APP and the right filler with a 451 Round Ball, could be real fun.

Of course, the rifle isn't SASS legal for the intended purpose, but now that I have the hair brained idea .................  Tongue

All of the published data re: using the 40% rule for smokeless in BP rifles does not recommend using any kind of over powder wadding. Steve Garbe (Editor BPCN) has published data on this a few times over the years.

I started using 5744 over 3031 and 4198 when I read that it was not sensitive to where it was in the case. However, I have never had any issues with the other powders either.

By "dirty", I presume you mean there are some unburned powder grains left in the barrel. I first noticed this with my Trapdoor carbine when it was noticeable in the breech after ejecting cases. Never caused any issues for me.

Oh, the Bad Czech and his PPS will still be out and about.  He's got a new double breasted black leather coat to go with the hat. ($44 surplus at Sportsmans guide)  But Jake Holman may make an appearance now and then . . .

Small correction: the XXX 30 round magazine did not come about until 1942.
